It's a single DB server across a WAN link providing local
DB lookups to ~9% of our users.  We never want it to become
the sync site for our other 3 servers which service 91%
of our users.

We want "Find quorum among the 3, the 4th is for local
reference only and should never be sync site"

aka clone, as I now know.
